    Wow. And the resident Canadian server, who was dating our server from France, even came over to talk about Burlington, Ontario, among other Canadiana. Absolutely awesome experience.

    We all loved everything we ate and drank. The seafood linguine was absolutely delicious. Service was attentive and warm. I enjoyed the comforting decor - very homely.

    My first visit to Donovans with family for a special lunch. I was really impressed with everything, the food was amazing with great attention to detail. Everyone enjoyed every course that was ordered. The wine was perfect and the service was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. We will definitely be back.

    Amazing food and service as always. We were celebrating a reunion with old friends and a special chocolate plate came out complimentary! One of my absolute favourite restaurants, always such a pleasure to come for lunch or dinner.

    All good but far too pushy moving us out when we were clearly still working through our food and drinks. Suggested moving outside and wasn’t really met particularly well. I love this place but have to say that tainted what was otherwise a beautiful afternoon.

    Great food. Beautiful spot. Very expensive. A little limited with menu options. Would like to see a bit more variety with some less expensive options. Overall a great evening but didn’t like the 6pm or 8:30pm dining constraints.
